I love reading Brisbane News. It reminds me weekly of what makes this city great: the people. Oh, and the food. And the vibrant culture, vast talent, iconic architecture, amazing places ... there’s a lot to love. When I sit down at my fav cafe, magazine spread out, I know that I will walk away with a smile on my face. It’s a little bit of magic. This week that magic has conjured a story about Brisbane ex-pat Sarah Morrison, whose face you might have seen 12m high on the side of QPAC’s highest wall. Phil Brown, who is celebrating his second decade writing about the arts for Brisbane News, is transparent in his admiration for a glass exhibition. Food critic Tony Harper, who notches up more than 15 years with the magazine, uncovers a gem in New Farm. Leesa Maher, deputy editor extraordinaire, reveals how a business owner’s brilliant idea has reinvented precious “me time”. Speaking of which ... enjoy!
